Thank you to all of our volunteers and skier participants for another successful loppet.

Check our video gallery to relive loppet 2017! 

We hope to see you again in 2018.

Reino Keski-Salmi Loppet


An initial misprint in the CCBC magazine competition schedule has provided us with an opportunity to avoid conflict with the Haywood Nor Am/ Western Canadian Championships. Contrary to our advertisement in “SKI Cross Country”, our 33rd annual Reino Keski-Salmi Loppet will take place on Saturday, January 14th, 2017.  

Start times and race routes will be the same as last year and can be found on the menu to the left.  Please note that although the routes on the maps are accurate, a newly enlarged stadium area and new sprint trails which intersect lower portions of the routes are not yet reflected on the maps.  The routes will be self evident.    

As usual, a complementary hot après ski lunch will be served on the hill followed by activities at the Salmon Arm Community Centre. These include a swim, sauna, and hot tub prior to our ‘Triple A‘ feature: Appy Hour, Awards, and A Chance to Dance.  Supplement the complementary appetisers with purchased pizza and beverage to round out a casual supper while you mingle and socialize with fellow skiers, volunteers, and family.

We look forward to hosting our skiers……visitors and club members alike!


Ski in 4 of the 5 loppets in the series and you will be eligible for a participation prize. If you are the competitive type, points for your top three best finishes will determine 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in each age category, male and female. Challenge yourself either against others, or to complete four (or more) loppets, or both. Support our local ski clubs, organizers, and volunteers, but most importantly, have fun
